Kairos: Volume 19, Issue 3
The approach of St Patrick’s Day, 17 March, has storytellers scrambling. And if your name (like mine) is unmistakably Irish, you are likely to be asked for at least one good St Patrick story fairly soon. It is a great honour, but there is a problem. Or at least there seems to be a problem for some of my fellow storytellers who are also (like me) approaching age 60. If a rash of recent emails to me is any indication, some of us aging boomers have lost our ties to St Patrick. And as any storyteller will admit, the chances of any good St Patrick stories coming out of this situation are slim to none.
